Pentwater police crack down on juvenile curfew violators.

PENTWATER — The Pentwater Police Department has announced that it will begin enforcing the village curfew notice due to juveniles destroying property and creating disturbances at night.

Anyone under the age of 17 is not allowed to be out after 11 p.m.

The department posted the following on Facebook Monday, June 21:

“Over the last two weeks, Pentwater police have received reports of juvenile subjects destroying property and creating disturbances in the Village of Pentwater at night.

“Effective immediately, Pentwater Police will begin enforcement of the village curfew ordinance, which prohibits people under 17 from being out after 11 p.m. and before 6 a.m. unless under the supervision of an adult.

“Juveniles found in violation of the curfew will be detained until they can be released to a parent or guardian. Continued violations will result in a referral to juvenile court. Parents can be held accountable for allowing their children to violate the curfew ordinance.

“Pentwater police are encouraging all parents to take appropriate action and assist the department in keeping Pentwater safe and secure.”
